    Help with Internet connection on wireless networks

    Dear All,

    I need your assistance.

    I want to connect two computers B and C together so that computer C can access the internet.


    Initially,there is a Computer A that is the Host and is connected directly to the internet.

    Computer A and B have a LAN connection between them while Computer B and C have wireless connection between them and they can all see each other and share

    files.

    Computer B can access the internet but it is a client(i.e it is already sharing internet connection from computer A).


    The structure is shown below:

    Computer C(Third party, IP=automatic)-------wireless------>Computer B(client, IP=automatic)-------LAN----->computer A(Host, IP=192.168.0.1)


    Computer A had an IP address of 192.168.0.1 and computer B and C have their IP address set to automatic.
    If I attempt to use Internet connection sharing wizard on computer B so that computer C can share from it, the IP address of computer B will bet set to

    192.168.0.1 and this will conflict with that of computer A.

    How then can I make computer C share internet connection from coomputer B?

    Please help out.

    At best...it will be a problematic setup. Software internet connection sharing is a pain in the butt.

    Best best...get a wireless router. Independent internet access for all, and...very importantly...computer A will not be connected directly to the internet...it will be protected behind the routers NAT firewall. Having a PC connected directly to the internet leads to malware issues.

    Just get a network switch and connect all computers to the switch and enable Internet Connection Sharing on computer A only. This will allow computers B and C to connect to Internet also.

    Of course the best solution is to get a wired or wireless router to build a network.
